Residential Balustrades

Gone are the days of balustrades being a timber rail system or a decorative design in welded steel,  put in by the builder.  With so many advances in modern product designs now you can have everything from the look of a traditional baluster, through to completely frameless glass panels for an uninterrupted view and great looking balustrades.

Modern balustrades use aluminium and glass components to create a reliable and long lasting safety barrier for your home.  The choice of balustrade style comes down to a few things such as cost, whether you prefer glass (so your view isn’t blocked) and ultimately your personal preference.

A general rule of thumb for balustrades is – The thicker the glass is then the stronger it is and the less “aluminium hardware” needed to support it.  So thicker glass panels are ideal for frameless glass balustrades, which have the least aluminium fixings showing (keeping your view clear).

However, the thicker glass the higher the price (for the additional glass and special finishes required).   Whereas, balustrades that use more ‘aluminium hardware’ (such as posts, top and/or bottom rails for support) only require the standard thickness glass and so offer a more cost effective glass balustrade option.
